Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi is a regular mistake to make. And exactly what you should do about it will depend on an assortment of factors. In the event that you would like to know what you have to do about this then stay with me.
Right here are the main variables to think about whenever choosing whether or not to get it drained:

  1. What level of Petrol did you put in the Mitsubishi, taking into consideration that the fuel tank capacity of your Mitsubishi Carisma Diesel is probably roughly 60 litres?
    1. A modest quantity of Petrol, as little as 3 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Carisma Diesel will most of the time not really be a significant problem. Experience has shown us that quantities under 3 litres (about 5% of the whole fuel tank volume) is frequently capable of being completely diluted by wholly topping the remainder of the tank with the appropriate fuel.
      It's rather uncommon to encounter a car suffering from difficulties due to lower than 5% wrong fuel contamination. Please remember it is rare - not impossible to find. You can get a few vehicles that don't stand any degree of contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3 and 6 litres of Petrol in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our practical experience has revealed that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. When figuring out whether to chance it and just fill it up consider that it is just like betting your car on black - you will have a 50/50 possibility of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 6 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Carisma Diesel ought to right away be removed seeing that your probability of succeeding with that amount of contamination is more than likely below one in 50 - really huge odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you spotted any kind of performance problems after putting the wrong fuel in your Carisma Diesel? If you have, have it drained irrespective of the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Proceeding to drive running a vehicle that is currently beginning to suffer from the consequences of fuel contamination can just be responsible for even more harm being done to the fuel system components.
  3. Are you looking for assurance?
    Simply get it emptied. No matter the contamination percentage, there is invariably some amount of danger linked with operating a Diesel engine on fuel contaminated with Petrol. Likely final outcomes of driving on the incorrect fuel normally include the engine not starting, running unevenly, reduced power, degradation of the high-pressure pump, worn out or blocked injectors, and the like. These are several of the most typical Petrol in Diesel warning signs, and should you detect any of them cease driving and have it drained right now.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel car and drove it. What do I do?


Turn off the car as soon as possible and call us. Continuing to run a vehicle on the wrong fuel can potentially damage it. We will be able to give you advice and assistance based on your circumstances

Will driving a Diesel car on Petrol cause damage to it?


It can. However, if the problem is caught and remedied quickly the risks will be minimal. Of the 1,500 vehicles we attend every month, less than 0.5% have suffered and substantial damage requiring parts replacement.

How much Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel car?


The safe answer is none. However you might be able to get away with a very low contamination ratio. That being said, we always highly recommend draining anything over a 5% contamination ratio asap.

I know about petrol in diesel, but what about Super Unleaded?


Putting Super Unleaded, or Shell V-Power, BP Ultimate Unleaded, etc, will have the exact same effect as putting regular unleaded petrol in your diesel car and will need to be drained out and flushed.

Will getting you to do a fuel drain void my warranty?


No! The EU Block Exemption Regulations clearly state that "the work can be carried out by as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturer's service schedule."

Can I top it up with Diesel and add some 2-stroke oil?


This might work on some vehicles in some cases, but in the majority on instances it won't and you risk damaging the Lambda sensors as well as fuel pump and injectors, just as a regular misfuel.
